Montage of crowds walking on downtown side walks. Mostly white people but some African-Americans.
¥ 13:01:59- 13:11:34
Aerial pan of "Detroit industry"Ñbillowing smoke pollutes the air. This looks like an enormous industrial plant of some kind. It lies by the river.

Montage of Detroit's industry. Start with an image of a parking lot outside of an auto plant, cut to excellent image of cars going towards the Chrysler plant (there's a huge CHRYSLER sign), cut to a view of the General Motors building (nice sign on the top of the building), cut to quick pan of an industrial plant, cut to several images of slicker, cleaner industrial buildings, cut to several shots of industrial warehouses, and finally cut to the Ford building.
